Little bit will turn the horse,
little rudder sets the course,
spark sets forest all aflame, –
tiny tongue is hard to tame!
Sh! are you lying?
Sh! cross or fooling?
Sh! God is hearing:
let Jesus hold your tongue!
Drink is spoiled by poison drop.
Does your tongue know when to stop?
Little words can harm or hurt,–-
just like arrows, germs, or dirt.
Tune: 77 77 + ‘Jesus loves me’ by W B Bradbury
